this seems to be an evangelism problem. the page has this code:
<a href="(Empty Reference!)">
... nested table with links ...
of course this is invalid HTML.
Page has an unclosed anchor outside the table.

<a href="(Empty Reference!)"><font size="1">
  <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="2" width="134">

As a result, the other <a> elements are ignored, since <a> cannot be nested.

To parser to see whether we can close out the outer anchor or something to deal
with this invalid markup....

Well, as of TODAY (09/11/2002), the links on the main homepage of this site DOES
NOT have any links on the left side of the page so I guess this just isn't a
problem anymore... :(
